What attracted me to them was their distinctive bark and the shape of the branches as they split and divided at the top of the trunk. The mature bark peels off in irregularly shaped patches exposing the inner bark – white, gray, green and yellow patches giving the tree its mottled appearance.
As for the painting - well of course I introduced lots of colour into the bark, and then stylized the canopy of leaves against a sun filled sky. I am very happy with the finished painting - in fact I love it!
